Oral Latin in Chicago — slightly off-topic

Let's have a Latin day!

If you'd like, you can come with. We'll meet at noon at the Lincoln
Park Zoo (2100 N. Clark Street in Chicago, www.lpzoo.org on the web) so we can have a picnic. After lunch we'll be talking about animals. Entrance to the zoo is free for everyone.

We'll gather at the picnic area near the flamingos--you know, the big pink birds. And if you can't find this place on your own or don't know the city, you can meet me at the train station (Ogilvie Tranportation Center) near Anne Sathers in the food court at 10:30, give or take. Once we've gathered, we'll walk to a bus stop about 4 blocks away.

Never spoken Latin before? Don't worry. We'll help. We have lists of useful words. Maybe you could bring a copy Conversational Latin by John Traupman or a dictionary (for your own help).

Questions about the day? Send an e-mail to me. My address is sipes23@hotmail.com.

Hope to see you there!

That's on August 11, right?
Umm, yeah. Now you get to see how well I can translate my own Latin into English. The problem is that I've already said it once and have trouble keeping straight what I've said where.

It is in fact on the 11th.
